It’s a question you’ve probably asked yourself at least once or twice during your lifetime. Should I get bangs? Perhaps you’ve had them before, or maybe you’ve been wanting to try a new look. As Boise hair salon professionals, we definitely understand the desire for bangs. In fact, many of us have sported our own fringe from time to time. If you’ve been toying with the idea of getting bangs, unDONE Salon would like to provide you with the following guide to everything you need to know about this specific hairstyle.
Figure out which style you want
Before you jump into the unknown, do your research and look at your favorite celebrities and Pinterest before you head to the salon. This will provide your Boise hair salon stylist with a good idea of what bang style appeals to you. However, it’s important to look for models with a similar face shape and hair type to yours.
Have them professionally done
It’s important to remember that we’re not in grade school anymore and your hair is not doll hair. Never attempt to cut your own bangs! Instead, contact the Boise hair salon professionals at unDONE for professional help. This way you won’t end up with a hair tragedy that you’re stuck with for months growing out.
You can rock bangs if you have curly hair
Bangs are suitable for just about everyone, including those with curly or wavy hair. In fact, bangs can provide you with a super fun, casual look, no matter your hair type. If you’re concerned about length, ask your Boise hair salon stylist to cut them dry, so you know exactly how long they will be. If you have curly or wavy hair and would prefer a straighter look, take the time to blow dry them as soon as you wash your hair, so they don’t settle into a curl as they dry.
Regular trims are necessary
If you decide to get bangs, be prepared to have them trimmed every three to six weeks. If you’re not willing to make that commitment, bangs may not be right for you. Regular trims also depend on the kind of bangs you get. Longer bangs won’t require as much maintenance as short baby bangs.
You can easily wash them
One of the best parts of getting bangs is that you can wash them after a hot day or sweaty workout without having to wash all of your hair. Instead, you can simply separate them from the rest of your hair, wash, and blow dry. However, our Boise hair salon stylists recommend pulling your bangs back with a stretchy headband while you’re at the gym, so you don’t have to deal with them being in your eyes as you workout.
There are a wide variety of bang styles
When you come into unDONE, your Boise hair salon stylist will consider your face shape, hair texture, and how you normally style your hair. These are all important elements to consider when it comes to choosing the perfect look for you. Bang styles include blunt bangs, curly bangs, curtain bangs, side-swept bands, layered bangs, choppy bangs, and more.
Growing bangs out can be a pain
If you decide you don’t like dealing with bangs, growing them out can be a pain. Remember that everything takes time, and you’ll have to experiment with your style as they grow back. If this is the case, you can try pinning them back, braiding them into your hair, and wearing a headband.
